    Can a form be saved as a draft?

    Asked by ceojax on May 11, 2017 at 10:48 PM


    After you've started to add data to your form, is there a way to save the form as draft? For example, I'm gathering information at different times throughout the day and would like to save and return to add/edit without sending an email notification. Right now each time I click the "Submit" button a notification email is sent. I would like to avoid that from happening until I've actually completed the form.

    Hello ceojax.

    Unfortunately, there is no option to save the form in draft mode only. Every update that happens on the form is considered as published and shall reflect the form right away.

    I would recommend to just create a separate form for your draft, or if your only concern is the email notification, you can alter its body content so that it will no longer update. You can create and replace the email notification with a new one anytime.

    Note: if you edit the contents of an email alert, it will no longer hide the empty fields when a submission is received.

    If you have additional questions, please let us know.
